The sound of the shuttle is an eloquent and compelling selection of essayys written over four decades by Belfast-born poet Gerald Dawe, exploring the figgicult and at times neglected territory of cultural belonging and northern Protestantism. The title, taken from a letter by John Keats during a journey through the north-east of Ireland in 1818, evokes the lives, now erased from history, of the thousands of workers in the linen industry, tobacco factories and shipyards of Belfast.
